Sports, Band, Extra-Curricular Activities
Due to our small size, Sancta Familia Academy does not offer athletic teams, band, and other activities popular among students. However, there is a solution! Also due to our small size, Sancta Familia Academy students qualify to play sports and participate in extra-curricular activities at their local public high school. Contact Mrs. Noonan for more information.
Sport, properly directed, develops character, makes a man courageous, a generous loser, and a gracious victor; it refines the senses, gives intellectual penetration, and steels the will to endurance. It is not merely a physical development then. Sport, rightly understood, is an occupation of the whole man, and while perfecting the body as an instrument of the mind, it also makes the mind itself a more refined instrument for the search and communication of truth and helps man to achieve that end to which all others must be subservient, the service and praise of his Creator.
~Pope Pius XII, “Sport at the Service of the Spirit”
